With summer on its last legs, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up some spray paint for $3.49 or a utility knife for $4.99. Illuminate your bathroom with a 4-pack of Ace light bulbs ($1.79), the better to see by as you caulk ($2.29) your sink. If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge. Get keys made, or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine (rental prices vary). If you need help finding anything, Ace's knowledgeable staff is available to help get you in and out and on to your next project.
Like auto detailers, Mr Belvedere Cleaning Services details homes, ousting dirt and grime from every nook and cranny. During twice-weekly or one-time deep-cleaning sessions, cleaning technicians tackle all areas of the house, ranging from foyers to laundry rooms. Their services are so precise, in fact, that they hand-wash ceiling fans, clear cobwebs, and wipe down doorknobs. With laundry and ironing services, they can take even more chores off their clients' to-do lists. Comprehensive in their upkeep of households, they also offer pressure washing, professional organizing, and carpet cleaning.
For more than eight years, the licensed, insured cleaning specialists of Dust Bunnies Cleaning have kept clients’ homes and businesses looking their best. They customize their services to meet each client's needs, whether that entails visiting biweekly to perform routine chores or deep-cleaning a property after its inhabitants have moved out.
The dry-cleaning specialists at Max Precision Cleaning Enterprise maintain a kindly rapport with articles of clothing and the customers who bring them in. Rather than subject fragile garments to the rough-and-tumble of thrashing washers, delicates are carefully analyzed to determine the proper course of action, with meticulous by-hand cleaning administered when necessary. The experts who staff each location are similarly conscientious about the earth and the humans who inhabit it, introducing environmentally helpful measures, including reusing plastic garment bags as waste-can liners, into their cleaning protocols whenever possible and allowing each location to double as a Salvation Army drop-off site for clothing donations.
Once people outgrow fearing the consequences of stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, they tend to take the pavement beneath their feet for granted. Twelve years ago, Sealer Kings of Nashville's owner Bob was exactly the same way, until his recently sealed driveway cracked in no time at all. He did some personal research, performed the task himself, and so loved the results that he sold his gourmet food business and went into asphalt care.
Today, he still fights the good fight against cracks, and any other form of wear and tear experienced by driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks. As his secret weapon, he wields undiluted sealants that sink deep inside the asphalt. On top of that, he also mixes in latex or Diamond Shield Foritifier additives so that each coat he applies is as hard to wipe away as the memory of seeing your parents do the macarena.
